Lasting Lily and Lily Framelit Dies with Strong & Beautiful

After a long, long delay due to weather conditions, I finally got my order with my Sale-A-Bration Coordination products and I didn't want to waste any time putting them to use, since I only have another month to really feature them on my blog. Of course my favourite stamp set and therefore, the coordinating die set that I wanted to use first was Lasting Lily and the Lily Framelit Dies! And I haven't yet had a chance to use the Strong & Beautiful sentiment stamp set which is so perfect for this set.
A friend of mine got some really bad news recently and I wanted to send her some words of encouragement and hope and a reminder of her strength.

  • I love the palette and the fact that the Neutrals family now includes colours that aren't browns, grays and black. I used Gray Granite as the base and then Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow for the the flowers, foliage and backgrounds.
  • I thought about using the new Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder for the Merry Merlot panel, but it was a bit busy for me. Instead, I chose the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder for the rich, elegant background look it gives.
  • My Merry Merlot ink pad is at just the right level of  'juiciness' to get a perfect image with the DistINKtive Lasting Lily stamp set. The stems are more solid, but the leaves also give a varying opacity look with the Mossy Meadow stamp pad.
  • The Lily Framelit Dies were a bit difficult to in line up perfectly with the images and I found myself trimming away some extra border in some areas, especially where I wanted the flower part to show through.      
  • I love the sentiment from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set. It is just perfect for this situation, but it also has a beautiful script. I die cut the sentiment with the Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies and matted it with the next largest size in Gray Granite.
  • The finishing touches are are little drops from the February Paper Pumpkin Kit!
